Just thought I would add something about the course. Im not sure how well known he is but Jacques Giard has just finished leading a week long module on Innovation and Creativity in Design.


Jacques Giard is Professor of Industrial Design and Director of the School of Design in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Arizona State University. I believe he plans to continue coming over to Leeds every year.


He is a very inspirational lecturer and gave everyone on the course advice, we basically covered the following:


Minimum aims and objectives


Identify creative thinking skills in the design process.

Identify basic theories of creative thinking

Apply the skills of creativity in the exploration of problems

Explain design through the model of the Designing Triad

Demonstrate how human factors affect design

Develop drawing skills as an aid to creativity




Basic theories of creative thinking in the design process

Explanation of design through Designing Triad (user, designer, maker)

Analysis of innovation and its value in design

Opportunities to develop creativity in drawing and problem solving

Introduction of the concept of evaluation in design
